World Forum for the Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations | Session 172 | 20-23 Jun 2017

86. The representative of the Russian Federation Co-Chair of the IWG on Periodical Technical Inspection (PTI) updated the World Forum on the work of the group. He reported to the World Forum on the seventh meeting of the IWG on PTI was held on 14 June 2017 in Moscow, the Russian Federation (WP.29-172-22). The group reviewed the proposal for a new Rule No. 3 on Periodical Technical Inspections of motor vehicles using Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and/or Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) in their propulsion system (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2017/93). CITA proposed to modify the document to refer to the recently approved UN Regulation No. 143 and to remove the reference of 300 ppm to assess gas leakages.

87. The Co-Chair of the IWG on Periodical Technical Inspection further reported that the group studied the draft provisions for inspection of hybrid and electric vehicles (HEV). The group decided to add to the draft definitions of the acronyms and HEV components according to UN Regulation No. 100 and provisions for use of On Board Diagnostics (OBD) for inspection. Due to lack of exact information and data the group did not find the solution on periodicity of inspection of the vehicle in question and requests guidance of the World Forum on that subject. Informal Document WP.29-172-19 incorporating the draft Rule on Periodical Technical Inspections of hybrid and electric vehicles is submitted for review to this 172nd session of the World Forum (para. 100).

99. The representative of the Russian Federation, Co-Chair of the IWG on PTI, presented ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2017/93 proposing the establishment of a new Rule on Periodical Technical Inspections of motor vehicles using Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and/or Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) in their propulsion system to be annexed to the 1997 Agreement. Several Contracting Parties indicated that they were in the process of evaluation of the proposal. WP.29 requested the secretariat to prepare a consolidated document for the November 2017 session.

100. The secretariat will submit informal document WP.29-172-19 incorporating the draft Rule on Periodical Technical Inspections of hybrid and electric vehicles as official document for further consideration at the 173rd session of WP.29.
